The consulate will care for South Sudan border trade, diplomatic interests and facilitate the services needed by the South Sudanese nationals in the state of White Nile which borders the South Sudanese state of Upper Nile.

A delegation composed of a number of South Sudanese diplomats in Khartoum visited Kosti city on Tuesday, to explore a number of sites for the establishment of the new consulate building.

The Sudanese river port town, links the north Sudan with the South Sudan through the White Nile. Before the secession people and goods crossed on daily basis between the two countries.

South Sudan is also considering, Sudan Tribune has learnt, the establishment of a consulate in the city of Port Sudan. However, its establishment depends on the resumption of oil pumping and the normalization of bilateral ties.

The two countries are expected to open 10 border crossing points in March of this year, after agreement on the mechanism for implementing the security arrangements that agreement signed on the 27th of September of the last year.

Delegations of the two countries, at the level of the joint political and security committee, are holding talks in Addis Ababa to discuss the establishment of a demilitarized zone and disengagement between the Government of Southern Sudan and the SPLM-North rebels.

        I was accused by Mr. EES kingmaker that i was mixing up when i alluded that a NEW DUBAI is being secretly schemed by arabs, EU & the corporate USA a few days ago. Literal thinkers believed the mediation by the AL, AU, US & EU b/n S Sudan & N Sudan is all about the interests of both Sudans, that is a BiG NO. Some lateral thinkers are very much well aware of all that are running under the surface!

    South Sudan should not believe the agreement made in Sept 27 last year with North because it will not work like what happened earlier last year. Passing of oil through Northern Sudan become their tool of forcing South Sudan to give up their rights.

        It appears our diplomaitc community is going awry. Why signing an agreement for opening consulates when old agreements are thrown in the dustbin? South Sudan needs to learn rules of that game. Khartoum NCP uses all hooks and crooks to strike at a closer distance. Those offices may help us much if NCP mission is to destablise and destroy existing, nascent state of South Sudan. It’s unacceptable now

    I don’t understand this situation!! why South needs to open a consulate in Kosti? why Jonobean are still living in the north after they voted 98% for separation and complained of being humiliated and slaved by Arab/Jalaba?what? you love to be slaved?!
    I think Jonobean should leave north and go to their paradise land and join the cattle raiding hot business over there!

      I totally agreed with you Jalaby, this is a good comment I like out of all nonsense you put on screen everyday. It is the same question am asking, why do Junubiin still live in the North and Gov.t wanted to open so many consulates at all corner of the north when they complain of colonization, sub-employment, harassment and humiliation by the northerners, yet government want to go back in all direction. shame on you

        It’s not just opening consulate in every Sudanese city (you know southerners live in all Sudanese big cities up to Dongola & Halfa north) but it will contain 4 freedoms agreement if the recent Cooperation Agreement between Sudan & S Sudan implemented!!
        You know what? I’ll tell you something that you will never like to hear!!

          Americans came to a conclusion that the south will never ever be able to make it without north and will simply be a failed state,they came to the same conclusion of British Administration colonial long time ago when they decided to separate the south and locked the south and dislodged all Arab/Jalaba from it and prevented southerners from wearing "Jalabia" & "Serwal"

            and forced them to change their names from Arab names like Mohamed,Ahmed,Ali,etc to John, James,Peter,etc but they found out at the end of the day that job can’t be done and impossible to achieve,they unlocked the south again and asked Arab/Jalaba to come back!!
            The north with its rich resources and strategic location can go without the south but the opposite is wrong

              so the thing is:Americans do not want to take the ethical mistake that they did by separating the south from north and then yielded a "failed state" afterward! they don’t want to take that responsibility and now they’re planning to upgrade the Cooperation Agreement and make it full Confederation Agreement between the two countries and that’s for the sake of the south

                and not north,they want to rescue the south before they’ve another Somalia country and the great lake area that will put the whole region in mess and chaos!
                Mark my words my friend,you will soon hear that news!
                Unfortunately,Arab/Jalaba that you expelled out from the door will come back from the window and will rule the south again but by remote control this time!

                  As per lately your post is full of nonsense.
                  As I said to you the other day you are a very small man trying to be a big man through your words.
                  We all know that in order for the 2 countries to survive economically they need each other.
                  The mess and chaos you talk about is already happening in our country or do you not class Darfur, or the border states and the east. Khartoum is not Suda

    All Southerns Sudanese people,
    We don’t want our South Sudan Government to do that stupid project in White Nile, we are not yet friend with North Sudan Government.
    We have important project to be done like Oil pipeline to Kenya, roads construct, Airport every city, Ramciel Capital City construction, hospitals, education, housing in every city and town, and water.
